Sechelt Fire Chief Trevor Pike said the call came in around 4 p.m. but by the time firefighters arrived, the structure couldn’t be saved.

Pike said heat from the flames damaged some of the siding on Legion building, but the fire did not spread.

No one was hurt and the fire is still under investigation by the Sechelt Fire Department and RCMP.
